Early Bath and Brass Plaques–Monday 25th May

We had an easy run back to the marina this morning passing just a few boats on the move, mainly hire boats returning to Clifton Wharf and Rugby Wharf.

Whilst June busied herself with the inside of the boat I did a little maintenance on the outside and whilst adjusting the offside fenders slipped into the marina. Now Brinklow is at least 10 foot deep and I went right under but fortunately did not loose my glasses; so it was a quick swim to the shore passing June looking out through the galley window thinking “my word that’s a big fish!” I went into the shower and my clothes into the washing machine in double quick time.IMG_6598

On completion of the BCNS cruise we were presented with this delightful brass plaque of the canals we had explored.


At the Titford Rally those boats who made it to the Titford Pools were presented with this round plaque. In future anyone who navigates the pools on their own can apply to the BCNS for a similar plaque

  1. Just catching up with blogs missed during Crick. I love the explorer plaque -- worth going on the cruise for that alone! Has it got any screw holes, though? Or is it levitational?

  2. Hi Adam
    Looking forward to your review of the Crick Boats. No the Plaque does not have screw holes so may need to stick it on or it does make a nice coaster for glasses or cups. The cruise was well worth doing and the plaque was a nice gift at the end. would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of doing it.

  3. I think most people would agree with your article. I am going to bookmark this web site so I can come back and read more articles. Keep up the good work!
